Super Staten Solar Stop Signs

New LED Flashing Stop Sign (with Solar Power Source)

I found this Stop sign on the corner of Kissel Avenue and Snug Harbor Road near the entrance to Snug Harbor Little League. It appears to be a test model of a new generation of Stop signs that blink LED lights to be more visible to motorists at night. That's good for pedestrians trying to cross the street at night.

In addition it is solar powered, so it even works during blackouts. They retail for about $1,100. Coming to a block near you?
